Sencha Sunrise

+

Refreshing and smooth green tea with floral notes

A Japanese favorite, Sencha Sunrise is grassy, bright and markedly floral. With subtle notes of chamomile and honeysuckle and a deep umami flavor, this tea moves smoothly across the palate and is evocative of a misty spring morning.

Contents: Loose leaf Sencha (green tea)

Origin: Wazuka, Kyoto, Japan

Tasting Notes: Grassy, chamomile, honeysuckle, umami

Sencha, Japan's beloved daily green, is produced by steaming leaves right after harvest to preserve their vibrant green hue and juicy flavor.

Our grassy, sun-grown Sencha Sunrise produces a medium-bodied, savory brew with subtle notes of chamomile and honeysuckle. This refreshing green tea from Japan's renowned Uji region is sure to awaken the senses and delight the palate.

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a kyusu teapot.

Gachi Grower Wazuka Japan Sencha Sunrise

After falling in love with tea while working as a part time farmhand in college, our partner grower made the decision to devote his time to mastering the art of tea farming. Since then, he has spent more than 15 years becoming one of the most respected growers in the Kyoto region. He, along with his co-founder, now manage four acres of previously abandoned tea fields that are now productive and contribute to the local economy.

Though the foundation of our partner grower’s farm is tea production, it also functions as an agricultural social venture that aims to: share quality Japanese tea with the world, contribute to the local and global community through tea, and generate interest in agriculture locally through education.
